This page was created with Dylusions paints as the base. I used Dyan Reaveley stamps and stickers to create this airy, dreamlike effect. The birds are outline stickers from Elizabethcraft Designs. The white stamp effects are embossed.
One gets such wonderful boxes from goods purchased. I decided to collage two of my collection.
The first was covered with Tim Holtz birds tissue paper and the second with tissue paper from Jane Davenport. What is so lovely with collage is the final blend coming together as one. I used Golden Gel Medium for all the collage work. I used Crackle Glaze for the top coat.
Using Laurel Burch dog designs, I created this page on textured blue paper created from gesso, and thick dylusions paints.
If you have created a page that you really don’t like, cover it in white gesso and create a collage on top. I did this on s page and the texture formed underneath is lovely. I added Jane Davenport tissues for the collage.
Fun colors and stencil accents in molding paste create this journaling page. Stickers from Dyan Reaveley add to the setting.
I love the Paper Artsy stamps, especially the very quirky ones. This set of flowers was glued on a bright Dylusions paint background.
Anyone into art journaling eventually watches and is inspired by Dyan Reaveley. You tube has an enormous quantity of videos with her very special style and teaching. I purchased her book and also watched her techniques. I didnt copy, but from my learning created this.
I called this Zzzzs as it has a dreamlike feel.
I love Art Deco and have made many cards with this theme. Here I tried to make it more art journalish in style - not with specific card like formations. I used gold and yellow acrylic paints first. I added stamps from Tim Holtz and some Art Deco paper.
Bright and cheerful coloring illustrates the idea of encouraging hope and not fear on this journal page. Dylusions paints were used as the base. Tim Holtz Stamps and numbers added effect. Elizabethcraft design stickers were used to create the flowers.
This page was made with a Dylusions paint on gelliplate background. I added the shapes for the necks of the giraffes. The flowers are stamps and die cuts from Heartfelt Creations. I used Faber Castell markers for highlighting.
This page was made using some stamp and fussy cut features on distress inks background. I used Golden molding paste in flower stencils for layers. The stickers are Tim Holtz sayings.
The flowers on this art journal were made with ear bud paint spots. Many of this kind of flower can be seen on YouTube. Lots of fun and really good for those who don’t have a lot of painting experience. Done on black gesso. Jar stamps are from Stampendous.
Here is a 5 minute project that will solve some messy cord problems but also please someone who receives one as a gift.
Cut out a shape or use a die cut to create a cute shape - like this owl cut. Use leatherette so that sides are clean cut and the items are useable. Measure the shape so that it can contain a wound up cord. Place snaps on each side - and it’s done. No sewing no glue.
Sometimes I don’t want to get into any piece in particular, so doing a small tag project can be creative and useful. The tags can be used for gifts, for art journaling at a later stage, for embellishments for other projects. These tags are Tim Holtz. The stencils are Tim Holtz too. Dylusions paints and stickers were also used. I used molding paste on the stencils.
I visited Monterey Bay aquarium today and videod these gorgeous jellyfish.
Sewing, machine embroidery, paper-craft, and stamping are my hobbies. At the moment die-cutting paper craft is my favorite, and I am sharing my projects with you on this website.
